innocence lost to the less experienced
dead weight that won't dissipate
creates a demonstration of futility
at full ability
you're killing me Smalls
preaching to a choir of these wailing walls
when it all falls down
they built this city on our town
down in it
minutemen going at it again
working to expand
on the task at hand
with all the grand scheming
pipe dream battery and assault
calling it the victim's fault
in other words, robot, you got me
feeling like a carbon copy
from your monotony
so join or die
but never should you question why
or transform fat man to fall guy
right in from of our eyes
the all seeing eye
makes you acquiesce

the subtle suggestions
artificially intelligent adolescence
mixed business with the mixed blessings
under the table
you can pay me not to question this
set adrift my memory bliss
like a trigger mechanism
possibilities multiplied like a prism
so choose your adventure
map out the splinters
from a spot at the center
like you're the element providing connection
a black umbrella for astral projection
the music seemed to be
a reflection of the happening
sorta like the sea put the captain in charge
nature without man victimized
these hands synthesize civilizations
with no limitations
no hesitation at all
call it subcultural sprawl
